Brussels Travel Guide

by our Belgium expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyWander the streets around the magnificent Grand’Place and you’ll soon be tempted by devilish delicacies staring at you from patisserie windows, stands selling crispy waffles or chips dressed with dollops of mayo. Whatever your budget, restaurants serve spectacular seafood platters and succulent tournedos so good they even make the French blush. Brussels is a mix of grand palaces, gothic cathedrals and more than a few curiosities - the diminutive figure of Manneken-Pis, the giant spheres of the Atomium, a Chinese Pavilion here, a Japanese Pagoda there. Shoppers will be spoilt with high fashion on Avenue Louise, antiques in the Sablons… and stationers stacked with fabulous cartoon strips. After all, this is Tintin’s home town.
